people onboard that plane. i want you to listen to what the ntsb boss said they learned from the cockpit recordings. >> a call from one of the crew members to increase speed was made approximately seven seconds prior to impact. during the approach, the data indicate that the throttles were at idle and air speed was slowed below the target air speed. >> the number from the people onboard, 182 rushed to the hospital around the city. rushed to hospitals around the city. six are in critical condition. two passengers who were on the plane died, but amazingly more than 100 people walked away without a scratch. i want you to see and hear the video that fred hayes shot yesterday. he has no idea he is about to witness a disaster. watch and listen. >> look at him. yeah, he does. look at that one. look how is nose is up in the air. oh, my god. oh, it's an accident. >> you're filming it, too. oh, no! >> oh, my god! >> oh, my god. you're filming it. >> what happened? >> oh, my god! oh, my god! oh, my god. >> you filmed the whole thing. >> oh, lord have mercy. oh, my god. >> lord have mercy is right.
and they will give us more information. what is interesting the ntsb gave us a time line of the last seven seconds of the crash. the crew anyhow they were going too slow and low. there were a number of indication and tried to abort the landing, the landing gear hit the jetty. and we had a tail section that broke off and the video that continues to come in from amateur videos from cell phones and other ways and means and she a dramatic slamming down and bouncing of the jet. it is amazing that it stayed together. we get first responder stories and everything from two of those inflatable slides that you see on the seat back if you look at the security card. two of those inflated inside of the jet and they had to use an a x to free the people underthem. and exacto comboifs used to cut people out. and so these stories continue to come out. we'll hear about that in the next hour and half. we'll update the conditions. this investigation continues to go forward. they are getting a lot of information. that runway where the fuselage sits is still there. the planes a arriving are not normal. >> adam thank yo

hotel. i like hotel. i need a bath. >> earlier today, ntsb chairwoman deborah hersman said the investigation into what exactly happened on asiana's flight 214 is just beginning. joining me now, nbc news correspondent, tom castillo. tom covers aviation and has been reporting on this story since the crash. and tom, what do we know about the possible array of possible causes at this moment in the crash? >> reporter: well, let me set the scene for you here. behind me is the remains of flight 214. sitting out there on runway 28 left. you can see that, well, in a minute you're going to see planes have been coming and going right by it all day. what we know now is that there were three captains onboard that plane, as well as a first officer. and one of those three captains was training to -- training may not be the exact precise language -- but was in his final hours of learning how to fly the 777. now, he had flown many other aircraft for some time including the 747. he had 10,000 hours of experience, but only 43 on the 777 and he was on his first approach attempt ever to san fra
, miguel? >> reporter: yes. not an official word for some time but the ntsb is speaking to all four pilots that were on that plane, those interviews will probably be ongoing, they want to know what they were doing and seeing on the cockpit on all the instruments and that incredible video that we're seeing now that shows us what a textbook emergency escape this was. moments after impact emergency chutes deployed from the plane. >> my god that's scary. >> reporter: you see one person zipping down and a stream of people running for their lives. one slide reportedly popped open inside the plane trapping people. >> we have heard there were some problems inside the aircraft. we need to understand why that happening. >> they're [ bleep ] running. >> oh my god. >> reporter: in a minute, dozens of emergency vehicles surrounded the flaen. the possibility a plane crash victim was struck by an emergency worker vehicle now part of the investigation. >> we are reviewing airport surveillance video. >> reporter: united 885 baiting to take off. >> these people and i think they are walking around. >> report
not pay attention to the air speed? because the ntsb is saying that the air speed on this aircraft really fell dangerously low. generally you want to hit the end of that runway, you want to come in just like this united airlines flight is coming in right now. you want to come in at about 137 knots and notice that he is touching down almost where the remains of flight 214 are right now. they were coming in at 103 knots. not 137 knots. 103 was their lowest speed just seconds before they hit the end of the pier here. when they hit the sea barrier wall. so the question investigators are asking is, how could that happen? generally the co-pilot is supposed to be watching the air speed and the decent scent rate. was it one captain thinking the other one was watching the air speed and the other thinking the other one had it in there's question about that. they're interviewing the crew in korean and english. there's another tragic twist to the whole story. that is as firefighters responded with a full emergency response on saturday, the fire department says it now believes one of its responding ri
where the ntsb has confirmed a significant part of that tail section was found in the water off the runway. the pilot had apparently landed in san francisco nearly 30 times but this was the third time he landed that particular model of plane. if you would like to get an idea of what it is like to land in san francisco, all you have to do is land at reagan national. take a look at this youtube video. that is the approach to reagan national on the left and san francisco on the right. you can see the similarities. >> very similar. your coming in over water and coming in over a bridge. >> the pilot has flown into both airports and says the water approach does not make it more difficult. in fact, the approach at reagan from the north is much more challenging. aircraft, the big thing you want to do is be stable in that approach. over sensors to maintain the proper direction, altitude and airspeed. we willue points read never forget september 11. that's the stoop position the plane, but the plane in san francisco was traveling well below its targeted touchdown speed, landing tail first
house live at san francisco international airport right now. what are we learning from the ntsb, the national transportation safety board, adam? reporter: john, they're confirming what a lot of eyewitnesses said t was coming in low and slow. they gave out basically a timeline that really describes the last seven seconds. everything seemed fine when it was on short final and cleared to land here in san francisco. but seven seconds out the crew first realized they were coming in too slow. over the course of the next seven seconds it evolves to the point where the, the handles shaking the way they fly the plane of course. they tried to abort the landing but it was too late. as a part of that the crew has given a couple of details so far but the ntsb plans on meeting with crew today, speaking with them as well as as the pilots. but earlier today, on fox news channel they were talking about, that talking about the plans for this investigation to go forward by talking with the crew. take a listen. >> so we do want to interview all four of those pilots. we want to understand who was th
the plane. investigators are questioning all four pilots who were aboard. the head of the ntsb says the plane struck the sea wall on monday, and part of the tail was found in san francisco bay. for the first time we're hearing from the first responders who rushed into the burning aircraft. >> we kept on trying to get the crew -- they're really brave. they wanted to stay with the plane and make sure everybody was off. we kept saying, get down, get down and officer lee and i turned around and looked at the wing of the plane, gushing with fuel right next to us. we got to get out of here, get out of here, let's go. >> pictures emerged of the two chinese middle school girls killed in the crash. authorities are looking into the possibility one may have been struck to an emergency vehicle responding to the scene. >>> over 30 people still missing after a grisly train crash in quebec and the owner of the train says he is certain it was tampered with and they have evidence.

you, it just -- everybody's just running. >> this afternoon, ntsb chairwoman deborah hersman said investigators plan to interview the pilots tomorrow, and she had this to say about the current state of the investigation. >> they're now reviewing manuals in training. they're working to conduct 72-hour work rest histories. and those 72-hour histories are really looking at the pilot's flight and duty time, their rest opportunities, and the activities that have taken place in the days leading up to the crash. in our investigations, we're often looking for things that might affect human performance, like fatigue, like illnesses or medication, like health issues. and so, we will be looking at all of those things to see if there are any impacts on their ability to perform their jobs. >> joining me now, pilot and aviation lawyer arthur walt. arthur, thanks for being here. i don't remember a case like this of such catastrophic consequences, where on the tip of everybody's tongue, even if they're not saying it, seem to be the words, "pilot error." at this early stage, is that your assessmen

the visual approach. the ntsb says the asiana pilot complained of a bright light that temporarily blinded him at about 500 feet in the air before the crash. what might that flash have been? >> well, the pilot also indicated that it may have just been a reflection from the sun. whatever it was, it was brief. and i don't think that that would have been the problem. i think the problem was that they lost their scan. the most important thing any pilot learns s in the very beginning is that air speed is absolute paramont. you have to keep total awareness of air speed. it got the behind the aircraft and they set themselves up for that. >> thanks for your insight. very good information. we do appreciate it. >> my pleasure. >>> that wraps up this hour of "weekends with alex witt" join us at noon for another edition. smart political talk up with steve kornacki and at 10:00 a.m. eastern it's melissa harris-perry. more special... with fancy feast mornings. mornings are delicious protein-rich entrées... with garden veggies and egg. each one perfectly designed... to start her day with a little love. fan
reliant on automation. the ntsb is looking into the role an automated throttle may have played in the asiana crash. >> if we can teach one thing, it's never one thing. it's always a chain of interrelated causes. the reason it's safe is this, is that the lessons that we have learned through accident investigation and through investigating the procedures, they're the ones that have changed this and they've made it such a safe form of trtion. >> reporter: casey wians, cnn, los angeles. >> casey, thanks so much for that. >> real painstaking look at how seriously they're taking it. >>> we have an incredible sight for you. a wall of dust covering parts of the phoenix area has an interesting name. sounds like something kate calls me almost every morning, a haboob. >> alexandra steele, what does that mean? >> the word comes from the arabic word for wind, but what a haboob is is just a wall of sand, a wall of dirt coming at you. the biggest threat with the haboob which we see around phoenix three times a year is the limited visibility. visibilitied got so low yesterday, visibilities he
this investigation with the ntsb coming to assist as an accredited representative. the boeing folks are already on the ground. they're going to find out, i believe, what happened here but the good news at least for boeing if there's any silver lining in it right now is that it doesn't appear to be anything to do with the battery. however, they're going to be looking to make sure that is the fact. the batteries are located much lower in the aircraft quite close to the wing in the rear and then also some in the front as well near the cockpit. the fire actually appeared on the crown up near the tail on the top of the skiff. >> so, mark if it's not the batteries, it's obviously something else. in some ways that could be worse for boeing no? >> well the engineers are back to their seven-day-a-week and the experts are. they're going the find out exactly what happened here and then fix it. >> right. officials have publicly said that evidence suggests this is not because of the batteries. you had the asiana crash, u another 787 that was headed to florida from the uk and had to
